Wanted to let you all know that I got word yesterday afternoon that in a couple of weeks, the forums company will have moved these forums onto a new platform that will improve speed ... page loading, comment display, etc.
At the same time, many features will return: The ability to edit your comments, the ability to return to the spot in a thread where you left off, and flags on threads that you've started, commented on, or have new comments.
Soon after that, we'll bring back the email notifications and other features.
I'll keep you posted as we get closer. Thanks for your patience.
